Adelaide, Australia, is the capital city of the state of South Australia (SA), known colloquially as "The city of churches". There are a lot of good spots to dive around Adelaide, although some bins are locked, there are plenty which aren't. Check your local bakery or supermarket regularly and you'll be sure to find some good stuff.

Central Business District (CBD)

  • The Rundle Mall's Woolworths bin is fairly reliable, and is located in an alley called Fisher place just off of Gawler place. (Last checked: April 2011)

Cumberland Park (6 km South West of CBD)

  • Woolworths located at the crossroad of Goodwood Road and Cross Road sometimes has their 2 big containers standing outside near the delivery gates. Friday afternoon is the cleaning day. (Last checked: April 2011)

Daw Park / Colonel Light Gardens (7.5 km South West of CBD)

  • Dumpsters of Foodland at 530 Goodwood Road could never be spoted. Perhaps they are kept inside the building. (Last checked: April 2011)

Goodwood (4 km South West of CBD)

  • Foodland's container is located in the parking at the back of the building. This bin is always unlocked. Yoghurt and vegetables can be found at times.
